Dear Representative [Name],

 

I am a constituent from [City, State] and I urge you to make women’s equal representation in government a reality by supporting the Fair Representation Act, HR 3057.

 

Our democracy is strongest when it is truly representative. Unfortunately, women are currently underrepresented at every level of the government, and the rate of increase in women’s representation has been stagnant since the 1990s. At the current rate of change, we won’t reach gender parity in elected office until 2121. That’s why I am asking you to support the Fair Representation Act, HR 3057, and to support establishing a Gender Parity Task Force in your state that will assess the status of women’s representation and determine targets for the recruitment of women candidates. By demonstrating commitment to women’s access to leadership, you and the [Republican/Democratic] party can lead the way in advocating for a fairer democracy.

 

[Optional: Personal story about how you have been affected by the lack of representation in government or how you have seen the lack of representation affecting others.]

 

I am counting on you to take action on this issue. After all, women are 51% of your constituency.

 

Best,

[Name]
